LAX may smell more interesting than usual: 17 million gallons of untreated sewage spilled into the Pacific Ocean — from a plant near the iconic airport.
Plus, Disney World just announced some big plans for Christmas 2021.
Those are some of the day’s travel-related stories I thought you, too, may find interesting.
Dockweiler Sewage Spill Near LAX
Have a long layover at LAX? Want to take a dip in the Pacific Ocean not far from the airport? Sorry to break the news to you: beaches near LAX are closed to swimming. Why?
17 million gallons of raw sewage apparently dumped spilled into the water near LAX.
A power outage at the Hyperion plant last night caused untreated sewage to be discharged into the ocean. Water samples are being tested and I’m getting more information about the scope of the problem.
Beaches from El Segundo to the Dockweiler RV Park are closed for swimming.

As far as we know, nothing at the airport is affected. (Call us snobs — but we generally don’t recommend swimming between Malibu and Hermosa Beach.)
Disney World Christmas 2021
Not long after Backstreet Boys announced a Christmas show in Las Vegas, Walt Disney World touted its plan for this year’s holiday season.
TravelPulse reports that WDW’s Magical Holiday Season will debut on November 8 and celebrate “the holidays with an all-new festive after-hours party, themed food and beverage, special events and [cap] everything off with ‘Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks.'”
Can you believe that’s less than four months away?!
